    What antique kernels? It's not enabled in the latest SLES beta
    (2.6.16-git6 or so), or in Fedora rawhide (also 2.6.16-git).

    They mightn't be exactly today's kernels, but they're no more than two
    or three weeks old. CONFIG_DEBUG_FS has been in the kernel for a long
    time, and it's still not being picked up.
